Are senior pictures on your horizon this year? Maybe next year? It’s not too early to start searching for an Eau Claire or Chippewa Falls photographer who fits your vision for your senior photos! So, if you are either a senior or a parent you are going to need to start thinking about choosing a photographer soon! The question you might be asking yourself is: when to book your senior photos?
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE TO BOOK
Unlike wedding photography, you definitely don’t need to book yourself years in advance – but a good rule of thumb is 2-4 months in advance at the minimum! Yes, really! In the past few years I have found that late summer & early fall sessions are becoming more and more popular. I’m only one person, and I do ALL of the hand-editing, too! Oh, and the emails, phone calls, social media, etc. So – my dates are limited during that time of the year. If you have a specific season in mind, it’s best to book early to ensure you get a date in that time frame.
HOW DO I BOOK MY SENIOR PHOTOS?
The first step you’ll need to take is reach out and contact the photographer who’s work you connect with the most. Look over their website & social media to ensure they have the style you like – because these are the photos you’ll have in the yearbook & hanging on the wall forever! Then, check with them on the investment you’ll be making to see if that fits within your budget. I make sure that information is right on my senior information page so you can see right away whether the investment fits! No surprises here! After that you’ll likely sign a contract & pay your session fee. Then your date is on the books!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
When you book your senior photos with me – you’ll get a bunch of fun stuff to look through to help you prepare for your session. Everything from a What to Wear Guide, hiring a makeup artist, selecting your perfect locations & more. Then before you know it, it’s your shoot date!
